If there is one thing artist and JAX IS RAD founder Ansley Randall believes, it’s that Jacksonville is radical. Started as a sticker-based statement of city pride, JAX IS RAD has become a conglomeration of local creatives highlighting events, businesses, artists, and culture.

While Randall has become a sought-after muralist, JAX IS RAD has enjoyed a burgeoning social media following, launched a podcast, and designed a whole lot of merch. Safe to say, the young creative knows her way around promotion. Perhaps most laudably, JAX IS RAD strives to elevate local entrepreneurs, artisans and innovators; in a way, making its brand message a self-fulfilling prophecy.
